Introduction. Adenotomy is the most common surgical intervention in children. The most common complications of adenotomy are bleeding and recurrence of the disease.

The aim of the study was to increase the effectiveness of adenotomy in children.

Material and methods. Under our supervision in the clinic, there were 183 children with adenoidal vegetations aged 2 to 15 years. The girls were 85, boys — 98. The adenoidal vegetations of the II degree took place at 27.3%, the ІІІ degree — 72.7%. In 2.7% of the lymphoid tissue from the nasopharynx spread through the hoans into the nasal cavity. In the main group there were 146 children, in the control group — 37. To remove adenoid vegetations, bipolar adenomas were used, and hemostasis in the postoperative wound was performed using bipolar electrodes of its own design.

Results and discussion. Surgical treatment was performed in 183 children with adenoid vesicles. In adenotomy, according to the traditional method (control group), intraoperative blood loss was 26.24±1.737 ml, while using high-frequency current (main group) — 3.36±0.233 ml (p<0.001). The proposed technique of surgical treatment of chronic diseases of the lymphocyte ring in children allowed us to restore physiological respiration in all cases. The use of electrothermagazies of the adenoid vegetation residues allowed to restore the lumen of the chicken, to avoid recurrence of the disease and to preserve a small part of the pharyngeal tonsil, which is important for the restoration of its function.

Conclusions. The technique of adenotomy in children using the electric welding technology of living biological tissues can restore physiological respiration, significantly reduce intraoperative blood loss, prevent post-operative bleeding, restore or improve hearing, and avoid recurrence of the disease in all cases, which indicates its high effectiveness.
